Zabov all’uovo is a traditional Italian eggnog made with milk, fresh egg yolks, sugar, and a little alcohol (it’s only 15% ABV). It has a brandy flavour. It’s a sweet, energising liqueur, taken warm as a tonic, or any time for a celebration. It is also sometimes used as a complement for gourmet desserts.
In 1946 a young merchant from Ferrara, driven by a passion for novelty, courageously decided to abandon the tranquillity of his family’s own business to undertake an entrepreneurial project and set up Distillerie A.R.P.A. di Mauro Moccia sas, a company “to produce and sell liqueurs, syrups and related products”.
From March 2011 this ferrarese liquor was added to the official list of traditional products of the Emilia-Romagna region.
